Strawberry Blessings

Well one of the cool benefits of living in hill country instead of cotton country is all the awesome fresh fruit! We have wanted to pick strawberries for eight years and never got the chance! So far this year we have gone twice!! We have picked POUNDS and POUNDS of berries!

We have strawberries in the freezer, we made strawberry jam and we have fresh berries waiting to be consumed in the fridge! it is AWESOME! They are so yummy too!

Emma slept for the pickin' the first time, but once she discovered the berries she couldn't get enough! The second time she was awake and rarein' to go and was like a kid in a candy store eating all the berries she could pick! TOO FUN!

If you are ever in our neck of the woods in April, go pick strawberries... even if all you pick is a few handfuls, I guarantee they will be the best berries you've ever tasted!

You know, I lived in that area for *years*, and I've never been strawberry picking. We'll definitely have to add that to our to-do list.
